Knowledgebases are a dime a dozen, but functionality is not always rich. Wordpress is the most popular content management system in the world, and because of that, there is a large need for knowledgebases, for companies and websites that require them.
The beauty of WordPress is the number of plugins available to support any type of functionality that a website needs to operate. A common useful function for WordPress sites is it’s built in search functionality, but when functions need to get advanced, sometimes you need a more robust system, like a knowledgebase.
One of our favorite knowledgebase is MinervaKB.
Here are some of our favorite features:
Built-in analytics enable web developers to track knowledgebase performance, like tracking searches and user action. Website owners can easily track the performance of your knowledge base, making the necessary changes to articles that need improvement. Google Analytics Integration works together with the plugin to provide more advanced reporting.
Flexible Live Search
Flexible Live Search makes recommendations and allows users to scan the available content without opening and navigating through many pages.
Along with it’s own knowledgebase support, email support is always useful. For paid users, 6 months of support is included and can be extended.
